The girl was twelve and the boy just turned fourteen, when their mother was abruptly taken away. The two orphaned children, a brother and a sister were out wandering the shores of the ocean, hand-in-hand as they were stalked by an evil Enchantress, who recognized their internal powers and coveted them and contrived to take them to increase her own strength.
The shoreline was a peaceful place that the children returned to everyday. Despite the darkening clouds and rain pouring down all around, the children smiled cheerfully as they made their way from one end to the other. They swung their clasped hands high up into the air as they skipped along and sang a melodic song. The sound of falling rain slapping against the oceans surface drowned out the actual words and kept them from reaching the stalking Enchantress.
The Enchantress grew impatient and moved out from behind the trees, ready to attack the children and hold them in a binding spell while she siphoned their youthful magical energies. The children’s mother was cursed by Sorcerer and shackled nearby, at the bottom of the sea. Despite her transgressions the Sorcerer who cursed her felt some regrets, for when he cursed the children’s mother to punishment he didn’t want their youthful ruin on his hands, so he said she would forever remain trapped under the sea, unless her children were in imminent danger and only then would she be freed.
The evil Enchantress began to cast her spell against the helpless children and the shackles holding their powerful mother at the bottom of the sea were released, and she sprung up like a geyser to protect and reunite once again with her young children, while the vile Enchantress was sucked up by the angry ocean to take her place at the bottom of the sea, where she would forever be.
